Last night, the Brownsville City Commission held a public hearing and took action on the first reading to repeal an ordinance dealing with plastic bag restriction.

The commission voted unanimously to repeal the ordinance.

This comes after the Texas Supreme Court ruled that bag ordinances violate law regarding solid waste disposal.

The second and final reading will be held next week.
